Sade Beats Adele in Britain's Billboard Earnings Last Year

Hitting all the right notes: Sade, 53, was Britain's highest earning musician in the U.S. last year 

With six Grammy awards and millions of record sales worldwide, she is Britain’s most recognizable global star.

But yesterday Adele was trumped by Sade in the 2012 U.S. money list.

The soft jazz veteran of more than 25 years raked in $16.4million last year after her first North America tour for a decade and the release of The Ultimate Collection.

Sade came sixth in Billboard's list of high-earning musicians, eclipsing Adele, the only other Brit in the top 10, who earned $13.1m. 

Popular British bands such as Take That did not even feature, and The Beatles remain one of our best performing exports, coming in at No 24.

The shy 53-year-old Anglo-Nigerian is a singer/songwriter and frontwoman of the four-piece band of the same name, Sade - or Helen Folasade Adu - was born in Ibadan, Nigeria but moved to Clacton-on-Sea, Essex with her mother and brother when she was four.
